Euonymus japonicus 'Ovatus Aureus' Hedge Plants Description
Euonymus japonicus 'Ovatus Aureus' is very popular for all sorts of positions because it provides year round interest and is well suited to all positions (including cold, windy, coastal, exposed) and virtually all soils (all but the wettest). It provides the best variegation when grown in full sun but will also tolerate partial shade.
The leaves are broad and oval with dark green centres, fading to light green and then with bright yellow margins. Young leaves are generally golden yellow.

Youll see our recommended planting densities for each size and root type listed in the product grid. We suggest that you use these as a guide, taking into consideration how long youre willing to wait to see your finished hedge. As a rough indication bare roots can be planted at anything from 3 to 7 per metre and cell grown between 4 and 6 - the higher densities here would need to be planted in a double staggered row or zig-zag.
For more information on planting distances please see our planting density advice section
Euonymus Ovatus Aureus will grow to 2m but is very tolerant of clipping so it can just as easily be kept at a more moderate height. To keep your Euonymus hedge bushy, tip trim the leading and main lateral shoots in May and then tidy up again in September.
